Within both of these the internal organization is in clusters, where central cremations were surrounded by inhumations (Smith, 2007b). There is no straightforward model for how to read these sites, as demonstrated by the difference between two nearby settlements of Este and Padua in north Italy, which lie a mere thirty kilometers distance from each other (Lomas, 2007: 30–32). From the seventh century bc the settlement at Este has a number of burial areas, each associated with a concentration of houses, implying that it was a community which maintained a division along sub‐groups.

Its meaning is controversial but generally taken to be an offering made to the deity of the community, possibly Jupiter (Arena, 1972). There is no indication as to what the name of the “community” may have been, nor does it give us any sense of the constituency of the group. Other instances of the term, mainly dating from the Hellenistic period, are found in dedications and legal texts. Touta appears on a fragmentary lex, dated circa 300 bc, inscribed on a bronze tablet from the settlement of Roccagloriosa (Gualtieri and Poccetti, 2001: 239–40, Side B, 4).

Whoever may have been the central figure within a burial group, whether male or female, a further question is how these groups interacted. Where no nearby settlement is known it is even difficult to tell whether a cemetery was used by a single centralized settlement or by a number of villages. 4 Necropolis of Alfedena – Campo Consolino.
